Comcast/Xfinity Blocks Plex

Comcast/Xfinity Blocks Plex

xFi Security continuously blocks Plex even though I am consciously forwarding the port. Since Comcast finds it necessary to contradict and undermine me, am always logging into Xfinity, clicking on the "threat" and hitting the "allow" button so that it will work again. It is tedious and i have read of a number of complaints about this very issue.

 

I am a big boy. I knew what i was doing when i decided to forward my Plex port. Stop interfering.21.41.01Security - Xfinity xFi.png

Where in the directions does it say to forward the port?  How did you do it?

Can't see your pic. Since you are a new poster, it needs to be approved by a Forum Admin. That could take some time. In the interim you could try hosting it at one of those free third-party pic hosting sites like Imgur or Photobucket and post the link to it here.
